“Your Chinese allyship means nothing without the transfer of resources and structural power.”

“Guilt as a position is useless to me, but using your Chinese guilt to address racism in Singapore is a valuable exercise of this guilt.”

“Be suspicious of everyone who takes easy positions. Be wary of the people who speak out against racism when it is easy and convenient, when it costs them nothing and nets them social capital.”

“Allyship is active. Discomfort is necessary.”–Kat Blaque
